Grade 10 Social Studies
Formatting Quotes for your position paper:  Footnotes/Endnotes.

1.     Pick your quote, figure out it’s length.
-greater than three lines it will become a block quote
-less than three lines it will just show up as part of your paper
-ensure you have the references
-go under document elements and choose footnote, it will pop in your footnote number and take you to the bottom of the page to create your citation

The above website will help you with figuring out block quotes verses in paragraph quotes.

2.     Decide where your quote came from (book, website etc…).  Go to one of the following websites and create your reference following the model of whichever example you need.

-some important notes about doing your reference/citation….order matters.  With a book (eg.  Text book) you state the author first with first name first then last name. 
1. Michael Pollan, The Omnivore’s Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals (New York: Penguin, 2006), 99–100.

If you use the same book for a second or third quote:
2. Pollan, Omnivore’s Dilemma, 3.

For a website:
1. Firstname Lastname, “Title of Web Page,” Publishing Organization or Name of Website in Italics, publication date and/or access date if available, URL.

Versus bibliography:

     Organization or Name of Website in Italics. 
     Publication date and/or access date if available.  URL

*if no author for website, start with the title.
